Best Foreigner-Friendly Apartments in Tokyo for Rent

Top 10 Tokyo Apartments for Foreigners

Hunting for an apartment in Tokyo?

Renting can be harsh in Japan some times. If you are a foreign resident in Japan, you may find difficulty finding and renting properties, especially if you don’t speak good Japanese. In addition to the language issue, there are usually many requirements to fill when renting an apartment or house in Japan such as guarantor, proof of employment, deposit and commission fee.

However, as the number of foreigners living in Japan has increased significantly over the last few years, more rental properties for foreign tenants are becoming available. Nowadays, there are many rental apartments and houses that foreign residents can easily rent without complicated procedures or extra costs and with multi-lingual support (mainly English).

From furnished share houses to private apartments, Tokyo has a wide range of foreigner-friendly properties that could meet the requirements of all types of residents, from short-term to long-term stays.

In this article, I will introduce the ranking of the top 10 foreigner-friendly rental apartments available in Tokyo, selected from the rental listing site “Living Japan” which offers a comprehensive list of apartments, share houses and monthly mansions for foreign residents in Tokyo.

The ranking is based on page views, so many others might be looking at and querying the same properties. If you like any of these properties listed, feel free to contact the agency to book a house tour while it’s still available!
